I had the multi flour brand muffin and it was moist, flavorful and not overly sugary- perfect in my opinion. I have also had their cheesecakes and have been very... read more

We went on New Year's Eve so it was kind of picked over. What we did get was good. The canolis were good! Cookies were ok. Not a lot of variety in cheesecakes left but they looked good.

Got a blueberry cheesecake for my birthday and it was excellent! I plan on getting another one next year! the blueberries were baked in to the cake, not just poured on top.

My favorite place for cheesecake, I try to visit each time I'm in Greensboro. It takes me ten minutes to decide which flavor I want. 💛💚💜

It is the best cheesecake ever. My favorite cheesecake is the gluten free one. They offer gluten free manus. The place is amazing.

Alex's cheesecakes are just the best. Creamy,yet light. Many flavors and just plain delicious!!! You can pick up a whole one to go and just stop by for a slice after a play.

Cheesecake is one dessert Hubbie and I agree on. Alex's special flavors are the best...seasonal blueberry, chocolate raspberry, peanut butter chocolate and the red velvet are tops. Locally made ice cream pleases even the pickiest of in-laws. Newly renovated space is expanded, clean, and relaxed. Can't wait for them to bring back the local artwork (usually for sale).
